      Hello Fields1878,

      Preflop: If you even want to play the hand from MP, although which is too loose then raise it properly. ~$0,08. :)

      As played
      Turn: You are giving away perfect odds for him to Call with any draw and not protecting at all. Rather make it ~$0,24.

      As played
      River: Don't think that there is even any point to bet it. Since there ain't gonna be many worse which Call you. A lot of 2pair combos are possible, sets are possible, straights are possible. Just Check/Fold it.

      Best regards.
